[audio]Words At War - WA4CZD
The NBC program WORDS AT WAR is one of my very very favorite old time radio shows. I don't have all episodes available (disabled & can't afford to buy OTR), but here are the episodes that I do have. Enjoy. :D Correct episode names are from the helpful Digital Deli OTR site: http://www.digitaldeliftp.com/DigitalDeliToo/dd2jb-Words-At-War.html Additional research is my own, though I ran out of steam...

[audio]Biography in Sound - WA4CZD
Biography in Sound was an hour-long documentary radio program that was produced and broadcast in the 1950s. It's one of the best examples of radio excellence - the production is exemplary and I find every episode to be compelling. It's one of my favorites; I don't understand why it isn't more well known! Each episode featured multiple guests, who often were peers or friends of the person who was the featured subject...
